I just picked up my 2001 3.0i roadster last Saturday. Black on Black. Pictures will follow soon. I am 6'1 with a 30 inch inseam and have been trying various seat positions. I am reasonably comfortable but have to bend my legs more than I like. I'm interested in what other taller drivers have done to make themselves as comfortable as possible.

I just completed a modification to the seat. Found an article posted on Z3 Net - involves obtaining threaded rod couplers which are placed under the front of the seat tracks - raises the front of the seat approximately 3/4 inch. Ordered parts from supplier listed in the article - took about a week to get in. Installation was about 15 minutes. Cost, including shipping, was less than 15 bucks. Best money I have spent on the Z. Makes all the difference in the world.
